Exclusive Valentines Day menu.Poised 1,800 feet above the Valley of the Sun, Different Pointe of View offers guests breathtaking views second only to the outstanding regional American cuisine that features fresh local and organic ingredients. The restaurant's mountaintop location and floor to ceiling windows provide stunning views of the desert landscape, the city's twinkling lights in the distance and Arizona's brilliant sunsets. No restaurant in the state has a longer streak of consecutive AAA four-diamond awards and Sunset Magazine named it one of the top 10 mountaintop restaurants in the nation. Valley residents have come for years to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, romantic evenings or just treat themselves to one of the most unique Arizona experiences. The Terrace Room Lounge, next to the restaurant, features one of the largest patios and a nine foot fire pit on the cliff side.

The setting was very nice - good views of the city of Phoenix. I was wishing we had come earlier than our 6:00 reservation to enjoy a drink on the patio. The menu was somewhat limited but I believe most people could find something they wanted. Portions were small - relative to the pricing. Interesting preparation of the dishes - might not appeal to those with a less than sophisticated palate. Service was topnotch.

Took my wife to DPOV for her birthday. The ambiance was cozy, the view was incredible, the service was impeccable, and the food was delicious. Great place for a special occasion. One tip: if you can when making a reservation, look up the sunset time of the day and set your reservation about 15 minutes prior. The sky and the city are gorgeous as it transitions from dusk to night.

This is our 7th time dining at Different Point of View over the last couple years. It never disappoints. We enjoy the easy-does-it atmosphere, service, the delicious meals & the Creme Brulee!

Fantastic meal, I try to come here when ever in town. Always have the Chefs sample and always been very impressed with the food and preparation. Best food and view in the country as far as I am concerned. Great service and people that care you have a great experience. All the way from parking your car to explaining your meal preparation.

This restaurant is in a beautiful setting and there isn't a bad seat in the house. The food was delicious (husband had sea bass, niece had scallops and I had shrimp) all very good. We could hear ourselves easily in conversation. this is a romantic spot.

I had the experience of a life time! We couldn't decide on what to eat, because everything on the menu caught our eye. So we decided on the 5 course meal selected by the chef. In my opinion, it was worth it. I did the wine pairing also. Our server Ian was phenomenal. His education to us on the wines they selected for us was an experience. He explained how each wine was made and what made them different from the other. I am not a huge wine person, but his expertise drove me towards enjoying it a little more in many different ways. The atmosphere is what brought me to this restaurant in the first place. A modern facility with the greatest view I have ever had for a dining experience. An overlook of Arizona while dining with your friends, family or the one you love is certainly and experience of a life time. The food that they served us was very unique. The flavor was all there. I would definitely come back to this restaurant in the future. Thank you again to our waiter Ian for the great experience!

Waited over an hour for our reserved table. Extremely loud restaurant with horribly bright track lighting over every table. Food was wonderful and servers were very good but way too over crowded and loud-wouldn’t go again.

Food was not evenly cooked or seasoned properly. Unless you are sitting by the window, there is no ambience. The service was extremely slow. I don’t recommend this place for any occasion.

The view was spectacular but the service was ridiculously slow. It took us 2.5 hours to have dinner, most of which was spent waiting for service or food. The food was great but luke warm by the time it got to us. Luckily the view kept us company.

I made a reservation and requested a table by the window to celebrate my husbands birthday. When i called to confirm the lady i spoke with assured me that we would have a cozy table by the window for the optimal view. Instead, we were sat at the top closest to the kitchen door where the noise was really loud. My chair was facing a cinderblock planter with tall plants in it so I couldn’t even see the view. Very disappointed especially since there were open tables by the window.

The setting is spectacular! The staff was knowledgeable and attentive. All of our dinners were excellently prepared and looked as good as they tasted without being over the top. A completely successful evening. We would all love to return again.

I had high hopes for this dinner, but the food was really quite unsatisfactory. I opted for the tasting menu. Not one course was executed well, and something seemed off with every plate. The pork belly in the pork belly starter was bland. My venison was a bit cold. The brownie was rock hard. I liked he forbidden rice base for the salmon and lamb. That was it. The sequencing seemed erratic, too. The staff was attentive and informative. I appreciated that. The restaurant is dated and needs an upgrade. I have had far better meals for this cost. The wine list was decent, and the view was good.

We had an exceptional meal and the view was spectacular! The Arizona Prime Beef Filet was cooked perfectly, as well as the Beer Brined Chicken. They have a great selection of Gluten Free dishes and an extensive wine list. The Creme Brulee is to die for, too! We dined here for our 22nd wedding anniversary and could not have picked a better place! It gets my highest recommendation!
